After meeting in a Hong Kong cafe last fall, Metic and Norvik floated the idea of a collaboration that’s become A Fleeting Dream in Waking Life. Blurring the borders between Norvik’s masterful ambient soundscapes and Metic’s expressive bluesy guitar, the album frames four beautifully paired-back instrumental beats with three graceful ambient pieces. What we hear is what we feel: powerful memories and emotions that override our conscious. Almost like a dream.

The seven-song collaboration stands as a source of pride and joy for the two artists. And for the listener, a source of solace that emanates in waves of emotion. The high-tide may be A Fleeting Dream, the most groovy of the beat-driven ambient compositions, with Adrift in Time and In Waking Life the most calming. The album ends with an expansive deja vu in the form of A Familiar Moment, gently waking us from a state of reverie, renewed and refreshed. Until we all meet again.
